Aiken Choral Society: Bluegrass & Ragtime

The Aiken Choral Society proudly presents “Bluegrass & Ragtime”, a performance of American composers who represent America’s contribution to the world of music!

Join us on Sunday, May 7 at 4 pm at Aiken’s First Baptist Church and enjoy performances by Carol Barnett, William Billings, Moses Hogan, Scott Joplin, and Aaron Copland. Under the direction of Dr. Maureen Simpson and accompanied by David Brown at the piano, our featured piece, The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass transforms the traditional mass in ways you never imagined. As composer Carol Barnett puts it, the piece brings “the solemnity of the classical choir-based mass together with the down-home sparkle of bluegrass.”

Free to the public; Donations are encouraged and welcomed as the Aiken Choral Society is a 501 (3)(C) public charity. Visit our website at to learn more about our efforts!

Funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
